« An open-air print dealer sits on the left in front of a table on which he has displayed the prints for sale. Second-hand enthusiasts come up and look around. On the right is a bale carrier who appears to be asking for the price of the volume he is holding. Above the table is a sign on which is written VARIE FIGURE / DI IACOPO / CALLOT. » (Jules Lieure, Jacques Callot, Catalogue de l’œuvre gravé, vol. 1, p. 81, translated by us).
